Hi, I'm Anthony.

Building OpenSpades on Ubuntu 14.04

August 19, 2014

OpenSpades is a multiplayer voxel-based FPS with fully modifiable terrain, based on an older game called Ace of Spades. It’s best enjoyed with a large map and a couple of friends:

Building this on non-Windows/OS X systems is a bit of a pain. Here’s what the instructions are missing:

Here’s a nice bash script to do the whole build from scratch. When run with something like bash build-openspades.sh, the script does everything needed to download, builds, and install the game. You may need to enter your password when prompted in order to do the actual installation. It’s meant to be usable on a fresh OS install.

If you’re running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, here’s a prebuilt DEB package.
